Abstract
  • This report describes the preliminary results of a study to compare effects of clear-cut and staggered logging on fish and other aquatic resources in small headwater streams. The results of this study were published in ODFW Fishery Research Report 9 in 3 parts.
  • Can Oregon's salmon and trout resource survive and prosper along with its vital timber industry? For many years the question has been debated on the basis of very few facts. Oregon's growing popula­tion, with its increased needs for both wood products and recreational opportunities, demands that a satisfactory answer be reached without delay. A stream and its fish population are greatly influenced by events on the surrounding watershed. Resource managers in Oregon have long been concerned over the possible effects of logging on water quality and fish production. This concern led to the present study, which was established by the Governor's Committee on Natural Resources in 1958 as part of the Alsea Watershed Study. Now coordinated by Oregon State University, the work is designed to provide a basis for obtaining the maximum benefit from the many resources present on a watershed, including timber, fisheries, and an abundant, clean water supply. Aims - The objective of the study is to compare the effects of two patterns of Douglas -fir logging on the fish and other aquatic resources in small headwater streams. The inability of young Douglas -fir to tolerate shade requires that the species be clear-cut to achieve successful repro­duction. Clear-cut logging of an entire watershed is being compared to clear-cutting in staggered settings where about 30 percent of the area will be harvested and a strip of vegetation will be left along the stream.
